It might seem logical that a country with a huge population would need to start building vertically, instead of horizontally, but these huge buildings have some unimpressive occupancy rates so far. Here are just a few interesting links on big buildings in mainland China. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
